What's the History of Schnitzel?

Posted on May 25, 2015 at 10:10 AM

La Fondue is pleased to bring our delicious and traditional Schnitzel recipe back into our cozy kitchen and to the dinner plates of our special guests. And in that spirit, we thought we'd share a little history with you as to where Schnitzel was originated.


In the middle ages it appears to be a very popular dish in both Northern Italy and what is Austria now, and the common meat was veal.The most famous of all Schnitzels is Wiener Schnitzel which is to Austria as a Steak and baked potato would be to the United States


More evidence that shows this came from Rome is that first of all Austria and Milan, Italy border each other and a similar Italian dish Cotoletta alla Milanese was enjoyed by an Austrian General prior to when Wiener Schnitzel showed up on Austrian menus.


Veal of course became the standard for Wiener Schntizel and in Austria you legally MUST use veal. However throughout the world Schnitzel is made and sold using beef, pork, and chicken as well as veal.


Come on in and enjoy some with us!
